Hamlet’s world can be rediscovered in the very castle where Shakespeare set his legendary play, with a programme of live theatrical performances taking place throughout the summer.

Visitors to Kronborg Castle in Helsingør can interact with the Bard’s characters, including Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Gertrude, Polonius and Yorick, and see the most dramatic moments from the classic tragedy acted out (complete with weapons and poison) as they are given guided tours of the Elsinore palace.

The characters in the live performances all speak English, so the original prose of Shakespeare is very much a part of the experience.

Tickets can be reserved on the Kronborg Castle website and visitors should set the whole day aside for Hamlet live – the retelling of Shakespeare’s longest play lasts from morning until evening.
